The National Park Service recently turned 100 years old! How many of our beautiful national parks have you been to? Enjoy free entrance to US National Parks on special “free entrance days.” More than 100 national parks that usually charge admission will be free on these days.
There are 409 national parks in all, and most are actually free every day. On special “free entrance days,” all parks are free. These dates are listed below.
- January 15: Martin Luther King Jr. Day
- April 21: First day of National Park Week
- September 22: National Public Lands Day
- November 11: Veterans Day
The free days may be busy, so call ahead if you plan to camp overnight, and find out about reservations.
Our national parks are here for us to enjoy, so find out which parks are near you, and plan your visit.
